THREE new heads have been appointed to secondary schools in Nottingham. Jill Hislop has been appointed head of Haywood comprehensive in Sherwood. Mrs Hislop is the first in her "class" of hand-picked recruits to the Government's new Trainee Heads Scheme to be offered a headship. The scheme trains potential heads to take over difficult inner-city comprehensives. Haywood has been "twinned" with Greenwood Dale comprehensive since its former head Don Spencer left last December. Philip Lidstone, currently a deputy head in Bristol, is to take over the headship of Manning comprehensive in Apsley. He succeeds Rosemary Allen who is leaving for a new headship in Norfolk. And Gareth Owen, who heads Birmingham's Centre for Accelerated Learning, is taking over from Roger Tanner at Margaret Glen-Bott comprehensive.
MICK Waters is to take over the top job in education in Manchester when the current chief education officer, David Johnston, retires in November. Mr Waters, a former head in Cumbria who moved into teacher training at Lancaster University, is currently head of education advisory and support services at Birmingham education authority.
